“The Nuer Community in UNMISS Malakal POCs strongly condemned the killing of IDPs at UNMISS base in Melut on Wednesday, 20th May, 2015. This targeted action against civilians was a slap on the face of International Community by the perpetrators” part of their statement reads
“However, the Communities send their condolences for the loves ones whose lives been cut short as a result of shelling. So, we stand, sad and mourn with their beloved families members wherever they may be found in this difficult time” continued Mr. Simon Kun William in a statement extended to Wangdunkon Media
The community also calls for thorough investigation into the killing and bring to books the perpetrators.
“Therefore, Nuer Community hailed swift decision taken by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon which requires thorough investigation which might have led into the killing of unarmed civilians who sought refuge in its base in Melut, if found, those responsible be brought to book without delay; and be our highly appreciation” Simon Kun William continued in the statement.
